Vale S.A. Contracts SGS to Help Source and Supervise Major Manufacturing Project in China

SGS is providing extensive, expediting, inspection and training expertise for Vale S.A., to oversee the sourcing, production and delivery of a conveyor belt, stacker, reclaimer and steel structure from China. The diversified metals and mining corporation, one of the larger logistics operators in Brazil, has worked with SGS to complete two major projects recently. As a result of their successful partnership, Vale selected SGS once again, drawing on their experience of the region, comprehensive inspection and expediting expertise, network of testing laboratories across China and extensive training experience. As part of this latest project, SGS has provided a team of 45 highly trained experts, who are managing and supervising the quality of the services delivered to Vale. SGS will assist Vale with the selection and evaluation of appropriate suppliers from China, drawing on its unrivaled experience assessing the quality of manufacturers in the region, gained during numerous projects for machinery, steel structures, piping, pressure vessels, fittings, casting, forgings, rotary equipment, electrical and instruments. The results will enable Vale to make an informed selection, considering the candidates’ strengths and the potential risks. This will also allow for countermeasures to be identified at the quotation and contract stage to help Vale to minimize quality and delivery risks during the project. Once Vale has selected the appropriate candidate, SGS will provide inspection and expediting activities during the manufacturing and the supply of the conveyor belt and stacker. In addition, during the supply of the steel structure, SGS will also supply inspection and expediting, pre-assembling check, quality control and quantity surveys. SGS Industrial Services has inspectors across 16 major cities across China, including Shanghai, Beijing, Dalian, Tianjin, Qingdao, Wuhan, Chengdu, Chongqing, Nanjing, Ningbo, Xiamen, Shenzhen, Wenzhou, Suzhou, Hangzhou and Guangzhou. This allows the company to assign inspectors close to the production bases and carry out inspections on site, saving traveling time and cost. Plus, local communication between SGS local staff and the manufacturers enables close and effective monitoring of all activities. One of the most challenging issues for sourcing in China is the quality of raw materials. Since SGS has local material testing laboratories located in 13 cities across China, including Guangzhou, Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Tianjin, Wuhan, Xiamen, Shenzhen, Qingdao, Yantai, Dalian and Ningbo, the company can provide independent precise materials testing with fast turnaround times, according to international standards. SGS will help manufacturers to upgrade their knowledge to enable them to meet Vale’s requirements during production. With their in-depth expertise, the SGS inspection engineers can assist manufacturers in China to overcome major obstacles, such as understanding international standards, and technical specifications supplied by international companies. Having previously engaged SGS expertise, this new contract endorses the company’s reputation for quality, excellence and consistency.
